WHAT'S NEXT

Creative States hopes to expand its web presence into a physical platform, and we can't think of a better place to do it than in our nation's capital. Washington, D.C. is complicated - it is a regional city and a federal capital, a local community and a macrocosm of our nation’s political values. It is a place that inspires with patriotic history but equally divides and disappoints with political stagnation. 

Let us create a cultural counterweight to the political status quo. Imagine a platform as kunsthaus, think tank, town hall and community hub all under one roof- perfectly situated for bold impact in our civic and cultural space, steps away from the White House and the Mall.

 

VISION

Create a thriving experimental contemporary arts platform that ignites public passion and participation in the advancement of our creative, cultural, and civic capital, and focuses attention on the importance of the arts to the health of our democracy and the competitiveness of our nation.

MISSION

Develop innovative collaborations using arts presentation, arts training, and cultural initiatives with the DC community to catalyze and cross-pollinate new thinking in the public realm.

If you would like to help us make this vision possible, please feel to free to join thousands of others in showing your support.
